    And that is the correct position. In fact a number ANSWER supporters made exactly that point in conversations outside before the forum started in LA.

    "We're not pro-Qaddafi, we're anti-intervention"  I don't know how they felt inside latter when it was all "brother Qaddafi" this and "brother Qaddafi" that....and not one critique of Qaddafi was made.

      and criticized McKinney for her "brother Qaddafi" line.  However, it doesn't bug me that criticizing Qaddafi was absent from a non-intervention in Libya forum.  It's not like anti-Qaddafi critiques and rhetoric haven't been common in this country for decades and been without any attempt at any balance.
